For the past week I have been travelling the southern part of the province continuing the work the BC Greens started in the May 2013 election. The momentum is growing and it is incredibly exciting to begin the laying the groundwork for 2017.
Last weekend I visited Trail, Castlegar, Nelson and Creston. Like the Capital Region campaigns, Sjeng Derkx in Nelson-Creston received over 20% of the votes. The BC Greens vote in the 2013 election tripled over 2009. On Saturday evening, the Nelson-Creston Constituency Association hosted their AGM. They packed the house and we shared a wonderful evening of local food and entertainment. I was honoured to provide the closing address and thrilled to see Nelson’s cultural ambassador, actor and comedian, Lucas Myers. Myers channeled his alter-ego “Randy from Creston” to serenade us with his song to all the “environmentalistic” people.
